    Very disappointed

    The mouse seems to work well for the first few months but the roller ball gets dirty and stops functioning. I already had to buy two of them. I know Logitech makes a good one but it is simply too small for my hand. In addition, after eight months since I switched to a Mac, I still can’t get used to this one click functionality. It simply does not make any since to me.

    Not a mouse for the long haul.

    The Mighty Mouse worked great out of the box. After continued use, though, the scroll ball required frequent cleaning. Now that the mouse is about 3 years old, even the click mechanism is failing. I never know if a click and drag is going to work. I can be dragging a file from one folder to another and it will often release the file in the middle of the drag. Then you wonder where the file went. Very frustrating. In addition, sometimes a single click is interpreted as a double click. I never use the side button because it is just too awkward to use.

    Piece of junk!

    For such an expensive computer system, it should come with a mouse that lasts longer than 6 months.

    Trackball Poorly Designed

    This mouse would be good except for the design of the trackball. The trackball assembly easily collects lint and dirt which causes it to stop working. Apple designed the mouse with no ability to clean the trackball assembly. I have one of these because I purchased a new Mac. Other than using it because it came with my Mac I would not buy one and now that I am having problems with the trackball I'm looking for a different mouse.

    Worthless

    The scroll stopped working after a month, don't waste your hardly earned dinero on this piece of trash, there are far better mice out there for far less cash.

    Easy on the eyes, hard to use

    Pros: looks nice

    Cons: everything else.

    Apple really screwed up with this one. I'm getting tired of Apple sacrificing functionality to make a product look more attractive. The clickers on this mouse are actually on the bottom...this is done to avoid putting ugly buttons on the top of the mouse. As a result, right clicks are commonly misinterpreted as left clicks. The scroll ball is a great concept, but it just doesn't work well and has poor tactile feedback. All too often its non-responsive. It would help if the ball was bigger. The squeeze-click idea is simply lame, and doesn't work well in day-to-day use. Finally, the ergonomics are very poor.

    Buy just about any other mouse and you'll be happier.

    Mighty Sorry Excuse for A Mouse

    This mouse looks good and would make a good paperweight but that is about it. Within 3 months of purchase the scroll ball failed. I had a wireless version but apple replaced it with a wired version instead. Nice. Furthermore, it is almost impossible to get the left and right click to work for any computer game play that requires a two button mouse. This one belongs in a museum with the Edsel. I have completely given up on this and use a cheap PC mouse instead. Stay away from this!!

    Mighty Mouse? MIGHTY MOUSE?!?

    Anything but "Mighty"! I've had my iMac for two months and the scroll ball on the so called "Mighty" mouse has packed up. Pathetic really. Shame 'cause the iMac is fantastic and when the mouse was working it was great but a shame that it only lasted TWO MONTHS. Judging by the reviews I am not the only person with this complaint. Let's see if Apple rectify this problem.....

    Useless for Development - Uncomfy

    I was extremely excited to get my mighty mouse and FINALLY get to work with my game development work. But right away I knew I was gonna have problems. Almost any advanced developing program requires a simultaneous right and left click. With the mighty mouse, it is impossible. You can map the side buttons to do the secondary click but it is a joke trying to click the sides and the main button at the same time.

    Plus, picking up the mouse while clicking (i.e. if you didn't have room to complete a mouse movement because of desk size) is terribly hard with the little side buttons being the only thing to grab.

    Not to mention it is horribly uncomfortable to work with. After only five minutes of use I had to stop and take a break. I have large hands and gripping this mouse is so uncomfortable.

    I can't say anything as to the quality and I am already taking it back, I can't stand it.

    Note to Apple: a firmware update to allow left and right clicking, and some larger (longer) side buttons MIGHT make it better.

    Good Ideas, Bad Execution

    Basically it has many neat, intuitive features. Unfortunately, they are not well engineered and begin to fail.
    -The squeeze action is neat, but too sensitive. (I had to disable this feature, especially important when working with Adobe software)
    -The scroll ball wears out after 1 year.
    -The pointer suddenly jumps to the edge of the screen... often.
    -Sometimes it must be unplugged and plugged back in to "revive" it.

    not so mighty mouse

    I would have to agree with the majority of the comments on this product. I was a bit luckier as mine died after about 1.5 years of use. Instead of buying another one of these mouses, I opted for a Logitech mouse that works way better than the so called "mighty mouse" ever worked. It should be called "wimpy mouse" really.

    not a good buy

    apple keyboard 10/10
    mighty mouse 01/10
    BAD PRODUCT
    scroll ball malfunctioned which meant i could only scroll sideways
    the touch sensetive right-click system is flawed because i leave both fingers on the mouse when performing a right click so it doesnt respond as a right click
    dont buy
    p.s. i do highly recommend the apple keyboard though
    and as an alternative to the mighty mouse how about considering a logitech bluetooth mouse product...

    A few problems

    First, the rollerball stopped working after about 4 months. Second, the side buttons get inadvertently pushed when trying to grip the mouse. Annoying. I like the look and feel, but ultimatey it has to work and last.

    Doesn't work!

    I have had my mouse for about six months when it came with my imac. i have liked until a few days ago when my scrollerball broke. it cannot scroll up anymore and i seriously don't want to pay fifty bucks for another one which might as well break as my current one. I really like what i can do with it but it's poor quality makes it worthless.

    Disappointing

    I just got a new notebook making a switch from PC to Mac, so I wanted a new mouse as well. Should have read these reviews first.

    I didn't have a problem with the scroll ball, but instead had a problem with the squeeze buttons. I've only owned this mouse for three days and it's already not working! I had the squeeze designated for Expose, and on the second day it was somehow activating it constantly without squeezing whenever I touched the mouse. Needless to say this made it impossible to use so I disabled the squeeze buttons. And then then a couple hours later I wasn't able to right-click anymore, even though in the settings everything was set up correctly.

    I thought maybe it was just my mouse but after reading these reviews it seems like a lot of people are having problems. Anyway, I'm returning this today and I'm going to stick with my old optical mouse, it's not as pretty but at least it works!

    Apple, please fix the scroll ball

    I've noticed a common theme about this mouse, and that is the fact the scroll ball quits working. Well, mine did too. Now I can't scroll up, although I can still scroll down. While the mouse is generally functional, I think Apple could do a whole lot better. The iMac is wonderful, but the mouse really is something Apple could do much better on.
